We have set ambitious goals on our Pathways to Positive for 2020:

• Reduce absolute Scope 1 and 2 CO2 emissions by 20%
• Reduce the rate of water use in stressed areas by 25%
• Reduce waste generation rate by 15%
• Ensure 100% of our manufacturing sites can claim zero waste-to-landfill
• Eliminate R22 from our global manufacturing refrigerant inventory
• Obtain 100% of electricity for Level 1* sites from renewable sources or offset

* Note: A Level 1 site is any manufacturing site regardless of the number of employees or any other site (e.g. office, labs) with greater than 50 employees. Joint ventures and tolling operations are excluded.
